Historic Site Tourist Spot
Step into 19th-century Ontario at Black Creek Pioneer Village, featuring original buildings from early settlers to the province. Overlooking Black Creek River, the village is the creation of B. Napier Simpson, an architect devoted to the preservation of Ontario heritage. You'll see lots of structures that belonged to the Strong family, who used to own the property. The thoughtfully laid-out village includes a barn from 1809, a water-powered mill, a church, a blacksmith shop, and other distinctive structures from the time period. You'll also have the chance to see period furniture, meet the animals that live on site, and visit the restaurant and brewery.

  • Great place to take the kids. Staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. Paid parking was $7 for the day, payable by credit card at the gate, or you can pay at a small ticket booth close to the gate (which is not convenient at all). There's a really cool brewery in the basement of one of the buildings that offers tasting flutes for $5. The farm, printing house, half way house and mill stood out as really cool places for us.
  • Went Tuesday after 2pm and it was free! There aren't as many character/ story people those days but it's still nice to walk around and see everything
  • Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Amazing performers on the holiday weekend. Beatiful setting.
  • Good for single visit with kids of age group 5-10... worth visiting once.. it has great shop inside for buying antiques..
  • Great for families with kids good for groups and after April is the best time for visiting. Also the way bigger than I thought. Worth to visit at least once.
